I was in Junior High, waiting for the bus with a friend of mine. He told me about the show and said I'd like it, but I didn't believe him. It sounded to me like some kind of cheap rip-off of Ninja Turtles. I eventually agreed to watch one episode. When I saw it I couldn't stop laughing. I loved it so much and watched it every day and started taping it when it went into reruns.

when i was 9, i was watching VR Troopers, and halfway through that episode i saw a clip of Samurai Pizza Cats being played on the monitor of their HQ. i was like, "Huh? I don't remember hearing of that show before."

two years later, i was waking up in my bedroom, early in the morning at 6:00. luckily, i had a small TV (although it was b/w) and a pair of headphones. on most mornings, i'd wake up to SPC's theme and put on those headphones so i could hear it without waking anybody up. occasionally, i'd sneak downstairs so i could have a look in color. sometimes, though, i'd sleep in and miss it Cry

then, five more years later, i checked out Princess Vi's web site -- the first actual SPC site i ever saw -- and ever since i'd come back often. upon visiting Princess Vi's site, as well as SPC Polly's, i became more and more addicted to SPC.

The first time I ever saw SPC was at a friends house way back in '96. We were both sick on a school day and were bored so we decided to watch TV and were flipping channels. Then when we came to channel 11 (which is the WB station in the NYC metro area), I saw some weird anime show.

The first thing I saw was this cat in white armor using his sword slash to split the ocean and rescue some big, fat panda guy (BTW, this was 'Emperor Fred Does Hard Time') Now, at the time I wasn't aware of what anime was even though I had known of several on Nickelodeon, but this one grabbed my attention. I loved the characters and the way they acted. I loved the action. I wanted to see more. The 'Fan Club Oath' part was cool too. The more I watched, the more I grew interested in the animation style.

I was pissed that I wouldn't be able to see the next episode because it would air at a time when I had school and I had to go back to school the next day and miss it. Luckily, I had Thanksgiving recess a day later so I was able to see a little more of it. I learned that the show was called 'Samurai Pizza Cats' and the white-armored cat was named 'Speedy'. I found out more of the show's story the more episodes I watched.

Back when I was 14, I was a depressed young teenager burnt out by middle-school life. Soon after experiencing SPC, my whole life took another turn. It revealed to me that there are some good things in life worth living for (no seriously, I thought life really sucked). It would later develop into a new hobby as soon as I found out it was anime, an art style made in Japan. From there I started watching other anime shows such Dragonball Z but that's another story...

It scares me to think that if one of so many factors didn't occur that day (i.e. if I hadn't been sick, if my friend hadn't been sick, if I hadn't paid my friend a visit, if we hadn't been flipping channels)...I probably would've turned out to be a much different person today, probably worse than I am now...

It was June 5th, 1991. I was in British Columbia, Canada. I got up for Saturday morning cartoons, and at 9:00 am, boom, SPC came on. I had NO idea what it was, so I continued to watch it. The episode was "Let the cellar beware" ever since then... I was hooked, and you know all know the rest of the story from there. ^_^

My memory of specifics of that time is a bit fuzzy, but I think it was '96 or '97 that I watched it. Since I only had area stations, not cable, I came across it on one of those by chance and watched it on my old b/w TV in my room. I thought the show was the weirdest, funniest cartoon of the time and watched it until it got cancelled. I mostly forgot about it until I saw a flash animation that made reference to it (Arfenhouse 2). That brought it flooding back. Good times.

I remembered something else about that time recently. I think that must've been when I had decided to throw out all my toys (star trek ships/hotwheels, etc, don't worry they didn't actually get thrown out I later recovered them from their laying about in a box) and didn't watch TV as much. I was in an overserious phase thinking I was all grown up or something, so I was embarrassed that despite that I secretly liked SPC a lot at age 14-15 or so. Nowadays I don't care, but back then it was my guilty pleasure. I remember turning off the TV if I thought my parents were coming. My sisters watched it with me a bit later and I didn't mind then, but upon singing the theme song as an act for joining our cousin's impromptu "Club" I was given strange looks. Some time afterward I checked to see if the show still was running and it was gone.

Cool, Vi joined in! Welcome.  Smiley

OK, my story is a bit on the different side because I never actually got to watch SPC on TV. I post in this board for a certain program(Burke might remember since that's how he introduced me to more SPC Wink ) and then when I made this thread on what everyone's favorite anime was, one of the girls on the board said she liked SPC. She then included a link to a site for downloads of the episodes, so I checked it out, downloaded a few and next thing you know I was hooked. I think that happened about 3-4 years ago but it seems like yesterday. Actually, the other reason I really found out about SPC is when I found the game Kyatou Ninden Tenyandee for the Famicom and I decided to "attempt" to translate it but that didn't go over very well so I just stuck to watching the shows Wink Roll Eyes

I had an experience similar to Methid Man.  I was home from school--sick with the flu, if I remember correctly--and was just channel-surfing, looking for something to watch.  SPC aired on FOX around 2:30 at that time, and I didn't get home from school until 3:00, so I never caught an episode.

By chance, the episode that aired on that particular day was "The Big Comet Caper"--the best in the series.  It was enough to get me hooked.

Hmmm... well I was one of the original fans, with GuidoDan, Expresso, AsterCrow, Violet, Lil Polly, Chaos Fox.... as you all already know. I was flipping through one day, saw it on... sat down and watched it. Hated it at first, but yet found myself coming back to watch more. After a few more episode I was hooked and it was also the gateway that lead me into the wonderful world of Anime. That was back when we had AOL 2.5, Super Nintendoa nd Gameboy were the in things, and people actually liked Power Rangers... O_o

I guess most of you know me already.  I've been pretty much avoiding message boards, except my own Nihonbare board, which is just a few of my friends and not really an official "SPC Board".  I have my own web pages and a monthly newsletter, so I don't really need a message board if I have something to say.  But on the other hand, maybe I can help my fellow SPC fans more if I'm not hiding away and only working on my own projects.  So, I will give this a chance.

My first "SPC Experience"?  1990: A relative of mine who was into anime gave me copies of a few model sheets from the show.  I had seen some anime before, I lived in Japan for a bit when I was a kid, but I wasn't really an anime fan at the time.  I thought the characters on the model sheets were cute and interesting, but they were put away and forgotten for a few more years until 1997 when SPC was on American TV.  Saban's commercials made SPC look like some stupid Ninja Turtle rip-off, so I didn't go out of my way to try and watch it at first.  But eventually happened to catch an episode and I was hooked!  I think the first episode I saw was "Pizza Delivery of Doom".  Eventually, I realized  "Hey, that's the show those pictures came from!" 

This was also about the time I was first starting to use the internet, dialing up AOL on my first computer which I had got for Christmas in '96, an HP with a Windows 3.11 and massive 2 GB hard drive ("I'll never use up a whole 2 GB" I used to think) with my 33.6k modem.  I didn't even like computers, and I only had an AOL account because my family gave it to me so they could e-mail me, I had no interest in the internet.  But my interest in SPC compelled me to use this to search for more information.  So, due to my interest in SPC, I learned to use the internet, make web pages, write better than I ever did in school, started studying Japanese, and I now know computers better than any of my relatives.

Well, for those of you who don't know, I'm Kyo.
I'm just a simple Samurai Pizza Cat's fan that some-how stumbled upon a Samurai Pizzza Cats forum, and... well... ^^;
The rest speaks for itself~


Hmmm~
My First SPC Experience~
I can't exactly remember how in the good world I stumbled upon Samurai Pizza Cats, but I can sum it up in 1 word... Accident.
I believe it was back durring my Elementary School years... namely 6th grade.
I was a lucky youth, in the fact that I had a VCR, and a Cable TV outlet in my room.
Chances are I was trying to record Power Rangers or something, anyway, I had the timer set too early, and so I caught most of the ending credits, and possibly some of the episode.

And so, I strived to see what this neat looking show was... and thus, I was hooked.
It was a favorite past-time of mine, coming home, and watching the recorded episodes...
Unfortunately, I made 2 mistakes...

1) I recorded all of them in EP instead of SP
2) I re-used the tapes, mainly because I didn't have any spair blank tapes.

Some of the episodes I know I've seen, I lost, and some of the episodes I have... Well... They're ok~ ^_^
Another thing about my episodes that make's 'em special would be the severe weather bullitens that run accrost the screen~
*Laughs* They'll always bring back memories~

In the end though, my collection may not be complete, but it's got the episodes I love...
And that... is... my long-winded story~

oooooooooooooh new board... I likes. Grin

Anywho,
My first spc experiance wasnt like everyone else's who actually saw the show on tv.
I dont even remember why i was searching for the show, but one day I was and I found Vi's and Tigriss' sites and SPClabs.
Now i have at least 10gigs of my HD reserved for all things SPC/KNT.
(If anyone remembers why i was looking up SPC please let me know...... Shocked )

To all those who missed me, sorry bout not joinin sooner, I got a new job, and started  doin alot of other things, mostly playing world of warcraft  Cool  and as all my DA stalkers know i just finished the entire Ranma 1/2  DVD collection....7 series is a lot (thats 20 DVDs btw) Tongue
oh yeah funny note about a Ranma episode... RANMA SAYS TEYANDEE!!!!!!....well in only one episode Grin
....... did anyone else notice that the english voices for Ranma and Inuyasha are the same
(for those who dont know Yattaro's voice actor was the same one who did boy-type Ranma and Inuyasha so its  kinda funny that the english voice actor did 2 outta 3)

hmmm well that was kinda sorta almost off topic, oh well .

Well, I was young, I can remember that.  All other specifics I can't remember.
It must have been the early 90's, I can't remember first seeing it or last seeing it but it was on the TV.
All I can remember is them jumping into there holes and it being a really enjoyable experience.
I found this community when I was reflecting one day on the 'old days'.  I also looked for information on the series The Tick.  Anyway I still haven't downloaded any of the SPC or KNT episodes.  I am very much looking forward to watching the series again though as I can't remember anything about it.  And with KNT being a different story it is like getting 2 for the price of one.

I can remember seeing: "Quit dragon my cat around" "No tallent Guido" "Son of the big cheese" and "gone with the ginzu" (thanks to _____ for telling me what ep it was) I remembered it earlier this year and it just kinda went from there

Thank you D-mac

My SPC experience would be around in the early 90s on a saturday morning, the first episode I've seen was possibly the underground hostage one.
I have also seen "Pizza cats are only human part 1", well the end of it.
I saw SPC again in 1997, when we had cable and Fox kids premier, at 7.00 am in weekday mornings and I remember seeing "Samurai charm school", "Princess Vi's Hippy-Dippy mum" and "The Great comet caper" which the latter I found moving.

I like all of the characters and the women are beautiful, particurly Polly Polly Love, which I had a crush on.

It was a school holiday in Junior High, and I was flipping through the tv guide because I was curious about what was actually on that early in the morning (when I was normally in school). I stumbled upon the name Samurai Pizza Cats and thought "what in the world is that?" It wasn't too late to watch it, and I was curious so I did. My first reaction was that it was the craziest show I've ever seen and "who would watch that?" But then I realized that that it was ment to be funny and have loved it ever since.

The first time I can remember seeing SPC was before school one day (high school at the time). My friend was late picking me up, and I happened to catch part of an episode. I thought it was hillarious and made it a point to set up my VCR to tape it and watch it after I got home from school. I just became an addict after that Speedy Wink To this day I thank SPC for introducing me to some great friends, and for inspiring me to draw and keep a constant character for 8-10 years and counting ^^
